What is it with Kanye West and Taylor Swift? First, the guy steals T Swift’s Video Music Award award in 2009, and now, he’s again openly attacking the Punk’d alum. Taylor certainly has her problems, but really, it’s about time Kanye backed off!
We all know that Kanye West thinks Taylor Swift unworthy of any musical awards. He made this perfectly clear during the MTV VMAs, when he interrupted the award ceremony to announce that Beyonce would have been a better choice for MTV’s prestigious award. Nearly four years later, Kanye still thinks that Beyonce is the superior performer. During a recent performance, Kim Kardashian’s baby daddy announced his displeasure at Taylor’s success: “Taylor Swift beat Beyonce at the Grammys? Beyonce be dancing in heels and s***.”
That’s not to say Beyonce was completely safe from Kanye’s criticism. She also wound up in the rant — not for any supposed lack of performance ability, but simply because Kanye thinks that the diva is selling out to the highest bidder. “Can I sell your drink for you please? So you can help me put on a better show. Please corporations? Can you please support me…Are people liking me again? Enough to get some money from the corporations? Are they liking me now? They forgot about the whole Beyonce thing right?”
Critics speculate that Kanye’s latest rant was targeted at Beyonce’s promotion of Pepsi. The partnership has earned the singer quite a bit of money and clearly, Kanye disapproves. This is particularly interesting in light of the fact that the rapper’s girlfriend has been the face for several products. She may not be a singer, but Kim still is in the entertainment biz and should thus be privy to the same criticism her boyfriend is launching at Beyonce.
Do you think Kanye West has a point? Or is he simply vying for attention? Share your opinion in the comments section below!
